Regular qigong will train the practitioner to draw upon natural forces in order to optimize the body from within, through the attainment of deeply focused and relaxed states, as well as develop their ability to store and harness Qi in their body.  Gentle forms of qigong will often consist of rhythmic and conscious movements designed to strengthen and lengthen the body’s connective tissues, improve blood and lymphatic flow, aid in the proper function of the organ systems, develop balance, decrease stress, restore energy levels and enhance one’s awareness of how our bodies move through time and space.
